How To Relax At The Cottage This Christmas

The holidays are upon us and what a busy season it can be! The endless events, the shopping lists, the crowds... it's easy to get stressed out! If you're lucky enough to be at the cottage this Christmas holiday, here are a few tips to make your holidays even more relaxing and enjoyable.

Create A Holiday Playlist

It's easy to get into a relaxed frame of mind when you're listening to your favourite tunes. Research shows that listening to music can ease stress hormones, lower blood pressure, lower heart rate and reduce anxiety. So make it easy to enjoy to your holiday songs by creating a playlist ahead of time... then kick back and let the music lift your spirits.

Unplug Yourself

The holidays are the ideal time to enjoy a guilt-free detox from technology. Turn of that cell phone, leave the ipad at home and turn on that out-of-office reply. Enjoy the peace and tranquility  of the season... and your beautiful surroundings. Give yourself an opportunity to revel in the things that truly matter like family, good friends, a shared meal and a few laughs. 

Get Creative 

Not quite finished the Christmas shopping? You don’t have to buy presents to make them meaningful. Baked goods and handmade gifts crafts can be budget-friendly, memorable and fun for everyone. So get creative! Handmade gifts, made with love, often become great treasures for those that receive them. 

Reacquaint Yourself With Frosty

When was the last time that you built a snowman? Can you even remember? Participating in a fun outdoor activity provides good exercise and a creative outlet that the whole family can enjoy. It's simple, start by rolling a batch of snowballs in different sizes, toss in a snowball fight or two... and you're guaranteed a fun time and great memories for years to come.

Bring A Simple Read

Getting cozy with a warm blanket and good book can be the ultimate holiday luxury, but if you don't have time for an extended novel, choose something short and sweet. For example a book of poems, a series of short stories or listen to an audio book as you curl up by the fireplace. The idea is to lose yourself in great story and escape from everyday stressors.

Discover The Night Sky

Cold winter nights bring crystal clear winter skies and some amazing stargazing opportunities. Do a little research and find out which constellations you can see in your area during the winter months. Exploring the milky way on a clear winters night can be a breathtaking experience. It's this time of year that some of the best starscapes can be seen!
